Edith Hammer's project is about developing an earth chip, a microchip, to understand how carbon dioxide is absorbed and stored in the soil. In her research, she examines, among other things, how different agricultural methods affect the microorganisms in the soil and the soil's ability to store carbon. The long-term aim is to provide concrete recommendations about which farming methods are most suitable in light of ongoing climate change, so that as much carbon as possible remains in the ground. 

In total, the Foundation for Strategic Research received 227 applications for the Future Research Leader Generation 7. Of these, twenty people were selected, ten men and ten women. Over a five-year period, they will receive SEK 12 million each for their projects and  participate in a leadership program.The aim is to give early career researchers the chance to develop and become future leaders in academic or industrial research in Sweden.   

In addition to Edith Hammer, three other researchers at Lund University were named as Future Research Leaders: Maria Messing, Emma Söderberg and Per Augustsson. Their research projects concern how nanodesign meets organic chemistry for greener catalytic converters, adaptive development tools, and acoustic gradient focusing for the separation of bioparticles.
